Friendship: Standards and Sacrifices

Last night my brother told me, Constant communication will strengthen a relationship (friendship) but worthy sacrifices will take it farther. The first thought that popped into my mind was, it doesn’t matter how strong a bond appears, if it doesn’t last then it is merely a facade of loyalty built on deceit. Yesterday I shared a question with my Whatsapp ... Read More »

How to differentiate a love from a liar

Remember my piece on knowing who wants you? Yes! It wasn’t written because I had figured out how to spot someone who wants you in their lives. It was inspired by the slimy behaviour of spouses in a relationship: people who aren’t ready for a relationship but would rather disguise to be, with an unconscious purpose of passing time. There ...

Selfless comes after self

There’s a Yoruba adage that translates, “the world will make a mockery of whom they carved you into today, tomorrow.” It is a solemn reminder that no matter how much love you have for people, self-love comes first.

Green Hostel 2 – 2

“Baba God? Kill your babe?” Prof muttered distortedly as he walked away, stopped abruptly then approached me again. This time making a mockery of the misunderstanding he created with his damning choice of words and infuriating me to the point of uncontrollable anger. “It is sad to see you express so much unbelievable naivety at such simple expression of grammar. ...

Green hostel 2 -1

SADIST: Life was no longer the same in Green Hostel after Kunle’s demise. Okoro beat himself up about it for weeks. On certain days, he’d sit alone at night and drown his soul in cheap whiskey. He said and did little, and the only constant factor about him remained his expression of words in Pidgin English. On other days, he ... Read More »
